Unexpected family history and a keyboard

Recently we were at a nephew's 3rd birthday party.  Seeing as we were in the area we followed JJ's parents back to their place as his dad had said he had a straight razor belonging to his grandfather that JJ might be interested in (seeing as he's recently gotten into shaving with straight razors).

JJ showing 9yo how to examine razor's edges.  Or something.

JJ was intending to take the straight razor and clean it up and return it, but FIL said he could keep it and use it but he would be upset if JJ lost it.  The razor had lived inside a briefcase of JJ's great grandfather's stuff.

Music session with Child's Play Music (and other things homeschooly)

Ru and Cub on the drums during a Child's Play Music session at Learning HubThe most recent session at Natural Learning Co-op (formerly known as Learning Hub, apparently there's another group in the northern suburbs also called Learning Hub, and which I'll probably shortern to the last word as I'm lazy like that) involved a music session with Alec from Child's Play Music.  He had a huge van full of musical instruments that he'd constructed mostly from recycled materials.
